The Miami Dolphins‘ offense has been one of the most fun units to watch so far during the 2023 NFL season and they managed to outdo themselves with a beatdown of the Denver Broncos in Week 3.
The Dolphins scored 70 points and recorded 726 yards of total offense during the afternoon, showing just how dangerous they can be when everything is clicking on all cylinders.
Miami didn’t have Jaylen Waddle available as he was ruled out with a concussion, but that didn’t stop Tua Tagovailoa and the running backs from carving up the sad Denver defense.
It truly was one of the most exciting performances from a team during the early part of the season and fans could very well never see another 70-point performance again.
The Dolphins actually had a chance to break the NFL’s all-time scoring record by kicking a field goal late in the game, but Mike McDaniels decided to kneel it out instead.
When asked about his decision, McDaniels said that he didn’t mind missing out on the record and that his players agreed with him via Grant Gordon of NFL Media.
“I will be fine getting second-guessed by turning down NFL records. That’s fine. I’m very OK with the decision. And I think the team, notably the leaders of the team, supported it,” McDaniels said.

McDaniels’ decision is a classy act considering he very well could have continued to embarrass the Broncos and really put a damper on their season.
However, it seems that he was content with the win and how well his team played and that should generally be enough for most head coaches.
It’s hard to imagine any defense being able to stop the Dolphins from scoring and they’re definitely looking like a Super Bowl contender.NEXT: Fans React To Dolphins Crushing Win Over Broncos
